Martin requested that The Winslow Mail publish the following statement from the Winslow Little League Board:
Congratulations All Star players, managers and coaches. All Stars is a huge opportunity. We are all so proud of you. We, as a board, realize there are a lot of questions regarding fees and fund raisers this year. All Stars is not cheap. We are working very hard at providing the best for our teams without breaking the board or the coaches. We are also trying very hard to give back to the Parks and Recreation Department what we committed to at the beginning of the season. Have a great All Star season. Please remember to drink plenty of water. Safety is the number one concern. Please remember this year's theme: It is all about the kids.
